    Well, I essentially paid $1 for it after my store credit, and the reviews are pretty good. If it fixes even 1 DVD (which I'm fairly confident it will), I'll call it a success.

    I'll report back when I try it out on a few discs this w/e.

    kapblp,
    Yes man. It screwed my Crysis warhead pc dvd. I tried to install it after getting rid of the scratches but the data were lost somehow and the installer stops at 92%. If its a music cd,pic or any other multimedia then it will work great but for PC....as I have experienced.

    I have tried the toothpaste method on some discs and it has worked everytime. Mind you the disc can only have minor scratches (not huge gashes) and the toothpaste must be regular white toothpaste (i.e. Colgate). Gel based toothpastes do not work.
